The FCCA Announces First Annual Central American Cruise Conference
Pembroke Pines, FL. (December 17, 2010) - The FCCA is proud to announce its first annual Central American Cruise Conference, hosted by the government of Honduras in San Pedro Sula from May 4th-6th, 2011.
Because of the rapid growth of cruise tourism throughout Latin America, the FCCA will focus its attention on this market and create a specialized forum where the cruise industry can meet and discuss individual issues that affect the seven (7) countries which form Central America-Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama-along with Colombia.
Geared for this emerging market, the Central American Cruise Conference will provide the opportunity to work together to learn how to actualize and maximize the benefits inherent in cruise tourism with FCCA's and its partners' wealth of knowledge and experience. It will provide business sessions, social functions and workshops to provide a superb forum for cruise industry partners from the Central American region for the exchange of information, sharing of ideas and cultivation of valuable business relationships, all the while learning the secrets of the cruise industry-how to promote your product, port or destination; how to best attain, sustain and improve the amount of calls you receive; and how to know and exceed cruise passengers' expectations.
If you are based in Central America and are currently doing business or would like to be doing business with the cruise industry, you should attend this benefit.
